Vulnerability Scan Summary
Clam AntiVirus: Multiple vulnerabilities
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200509-13
(Clam AntiVirus: Multiple vulnerabilities)
Clam AntiVirus is vulnerable to a buffer overflow in
"libclamav/upx.c" when processing malformed UPX-packed executables. It
can also be sent into an infinite loop in "libclamav/fsg.c" when
processing specially-crafted FSG-packed executables.
By sending a specially-crafted file a possible hacker could execute
arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running Clam AntiVirus,
or cause a Denial of Service.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Clam AntiVirus users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-antivirus/clamav-0.87"
Threat Level: High
